The shelves were nearly bare, above, yet UMCOR volunteers recently donated several handmade dresses to the Franklin Emergency Aid Center. Pictured below from left are Emergency Aid Center Director Patti Ibert and UMCOR volunteer Frances Stinnett. The Emergency Aid Center is an agency United Way of South Louisiana.
Emergency Aid needs donations
Patti Ibert, director of the Emergency Aid Center for United Way of South La., says the center is again in need of food donations.
She explained that the center has found itself serving up to 77 families recently due to seasonal financial stresses on those families.
So, Ibert is turning to the citizenry of Franklin and surrounding areas to give whatever they can.
She also announced that Food for Families Food Drive will take place Dec. 10 at Church of the Assumption in Franklin.
EAC is located at 106 Commercial St., Franklin, and is open to the public Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
